    Gees! There is a polished stainless steel 2.5 (full size) on eBay described as:
    "UP FOR SALE IS THE ULTRA RARE CHROME AUTHENTIC RARE AND VERY HARD TO FIND PROVAPE PROVARI IN CHROME BRAND NEW IN THE BOX WITH THE MATCHING EXTENSION SO THAT YOU CAN USE 18650 BATTERY." I'm surprised "haunted" isn't in the description somewhere.

    It's implied subliminally, and will be inferred upon sight.

    Well, I've adapted to using a couple other devices that can buck down decently for my needs and it's been a couple weeks since I used my daily driver 2.5 as I loaned it out. It's been interesting getting used to different features, hand feel and glitches, but nice to know there are other options that can be pretty satisfying.

    That said, I find myself "borrowing" my wife's 2.5 regularly. Nothing quite compares and it's still my favorite.

    Been grabbing a few extra provaris of all models just for that reason BB. I did test a dicodes for a bit and it's a Provari rival for sure.

    Hi guys, I have 2 questions:

    1. The Procyon showed a message about having an internal failure just after placing an atty. But I took out the battery and rebooted the device and is working flawlessly. Do you think I should send it to Bill? Any thoughts about what happened?

    2. The Procyon is the stainless steel version (brushed not shiny). What do you use to clean it. I've noticed some spots on it, can it be because of hand sweat?

    1. That happened the very first time I inserted a battery into my Procyon. If ProVape would've been around, I would've emailed them but since they are not, I just figured I'd see what would happen to see if I needed to contact Bill or not. That was at the beginning of June. It has worked flawlessly ever since.

    2. No answer.

    If it works for several battery changes then don't worry about it. As for cleaning the tube, dish soap mostly or a good SS cleaner/polish if needed. Provape used top quality SS so even the saltiest sweat shouldn't stain it.

    Hi All, (It has been awhile :yawn:)
    I got to D.C. with the election and just came back to AZ. 11-12 hour days was getting old without family around. But, I am doing that here. I tried to retire, but I am just to antsy. I don't even ride the pig much.
    Anyway, I updated the programming on my Radii to the 40CC and got some SS316L to try a version of temp control for the first time ever. (yaaa...(whatever)) But, the manual that I have has no instructions for using the new feature. Anyone have a cheat sheet?

    Thanks,
    Frenchfry

    Keep us posted please how you make out. I just updated one too, but didn't load the CC version. I hadn't heard too many success stories with it, so skipped it.

    Thanks! I am using My Kayfun v5 is at 1.1 ohms. The chart seems to show drop-in coils, but SS316L is still SS so I will start at G and work down.

    It is only one topper that I am using for the experimenting.

    Update...I tried it on the higher letters and all of the numbers...exceeded 40 every time. It is a 60w Radius. I will tinker tonight. Off to work.

    Thanks! for the PDF.

    I'd completely forgotten that the Radius can do TC. Of course mine is only the 40w.
    Please keep us posted with your experiences @Frenchfry1942

    I didn't think that the Radius did TC. I just scanned thru the manual and didn't see it mentioned. I have the 60 watt Radius.

    I got a vague reference about the settings from the link above and tinkered with it... It just kept telling me to adjust and between the 9 letter designated categories and the 7 power levels I just kept getting more "try again".

    I just rebuilt two toppers with Kanthal. That's how I see it. Provape needs a finer tuning of it. I would call them, but...who would answer.

    Kanthal meets my needs. 6 wraps on a 3.0 widget.

    When they released their method of TC, I just kind of chuckled to myself and said...yeah....no. I'll wait till they figure out something more concrete...

    RIP Provape.

    Or, suck up Mai Tais and eat tons of kalua pork with a tad of poi.

    Find macadamia trees, and search for Santas on Surfboards.
